CHTA will discuss China technology at the world’s largest hospitality technology conference
AUSTIN, TEXAS (May 18, 2016) — Hospitality Financial and Technology Professionals (HFTP®) has announced plans for a new educational session on hotel technology trends in China at the upcoming Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference (HITECSM). The Global China session will be organized by HFTP’s allied association, the China Hospitality Technology Alliance (CHTA) and is scheduled for Wednesday, June 22, 2016 at 11:30 a.m. in the Rivergate Room at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La. USA.
The featured HITEC educational session will discuss how China is growing globally in the areas of tourism and travel, as well as how investors and technology vendors are making an impact toward the hospitality industry at large. A keynote will start the session with a presentation of the current industry status in China. This will be followed by a panel discussion with senior hoteliers and moderated by Jing Zhu, CHTA chair and CEO. HFTP CEO Frank Wolfe, CAE will also participate in the panel discussion.
“HFTP is proud to partner with CHTA,” explains Wolfe. “Both HFTP and CHTA are committed to promoting education and creating a better industry for the hospitality technology professionals worldwide.”
The partnership between HFTP and CHTA ensures the visibility of both associations at industry events. Event attendees benefit from the partnership as they are able to meet with representatives from CHTA at HITEC, as well as HFTP representatives at CHTA’s Global Conference in November. HITEC, produced by HFTP, is the world’s largest hospitality technology show and CHTA is recognized as the authoritative resource for hospitality technology in the Greater China and Asia region.
“I am honored to be here at HITEC on behalf of the CHTA committee,” said Zhu. “While China is making an impact globally, CHTA has a mission to make the hospitality industry a much better space from a technology perspective. We truly appreciate all of the support from HFTP — together we are going to make a difference.”
